Things I liked:

This is one high quality scope. I have had leapers,and centerpoint scopes but the Hawk's quality is so much superior to them. You pay for quality and the hawk does not disappoint.

Things I would have changed:

a sidewinder,but then that would raise the price beyond my pricepoint

What others should know:

If you want a quality well made scope, this is one that will not disappoint.

Things I liked:

I love the Hawke scope this one just didn't work out on my break barrel pellet gun.

Things I would have changed:

Make sure they will take the recoil of a high power break barrel pellet gun.

What others should know:

I believe I received a scope from the factory that was bad would not zero in after 125 shoots.

    Things I liked:

    Great scope, good magnification well made

    Things I would have changed:

    An illuminated reticle would make this scope rock

  • Rating 4.04.0 4.0

    Rating 4.04.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Very clear optics, functionality of reticle for long range shooting, easy adjustments, warranty response and customer service. In combination with Chairgun app and chronograph I could very consistently hit long range targets with the HW97 and JSB heavy diabolos (10.3 gr).

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing really...I think it is a great scope in its price range but should be used on either low power springers or PCPs.

    What others should know:

    Scope developed a problem with the AO after a couple tins of pellets but Hawke replaced it. Best customer service I've ever received (short of a refund). When I get the new one I'll put it on a lower power rifle like a FWB124 or FWB300. Perhaps a higher cost model would be better suited for the HW97 and similar guns.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    you need tall mounts for this scope

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    The Airmax has very clear glass, and I like the reticule too. It's an easy scope to look through. I use it on a break barrel and that's why I got this scope because it can handle the shock of the recoil, and it does.

    Things I would have changed:

    This is a 1/4 MOA scope, which is good, but when I go to adjust the reticule I kind have trouble feeling the clicks on the turret.

    What others should know:

    I suppose it depends on your income, but to me $230 is a lot for a scope, especially for a pellet rifle, but to many it's an inexpensive scope and I know that no matter what gun you buy, you can spend more than that on the scope. But I think this scope is worth the money! I really like this scope.

    Things I liked:

    As always Hawk optics are the best for air rifles. Clarity, accuracy are very nice. Very Happy!

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    Things I liked:

    Fantastic quality scope. Easy to use windage/elevation turrets. Objective adjustment is smooth and positive. Mounted on my Walther LGU and it has fantastic accuracy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Etched reticles lines are very fine. Could be a little more pronounced but not a deal breaker.

    What others should know:

    I've been using Leapers and Mantis scopes on my air rifles. These are very good scopes for the money. But the quality and clarity of this Hawke scope is clearly better. This is a great scope for my LGU. Have no trouble hitting energy shot bottles at 50yrds with 1/2 mil hold up. Really like the hold over "aiming tree"

    Things I liked:

    The amx reticle is excellent, clarity of the glass is second to none best I've looked through in years, in my opinion better than the sidewinder and a varmint series I own both.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe an illuminated reticle with the more budget versions...

    What others should know:

    The 4x12-50 airmax scope is an excellent piece of hardware, the floating etched glass reticle is thin but not so thin that a camera or smart phone will not pick it up. I use my smartphone regularly. I have seriously bumped, jarred, and nearly dropped my bullpup cricket and the scope has never lost zero. I routinely make shots at 105-135 yards with ease using this scope and the hawke BRC software, my sidewinder 6.5x20, and varmint 3x12-44 does not even come close to being as consistent as this airmax. Remember every scope has lag, be patient small adjustments and this airmax will surprise you...it did me! Will be upgrading to the side focus version very soon! (Be safe and aware of whats beyond your target.) Pyramydair is an excellent company to do buisness with friendly customer service, fast shipping, and no hassle returns if theres any problems. Been a customer for 3yrs now and plan to stay for life.

    Things I liked:

    I bought this scope about 2 years ago and have been meaning to write some comments on it. The scope has been working great within the range I shoot, which is typically 40-50yrds. I'm working on targets at 100yrds now and the scope gets me there with ease.

    Things I would have changed:

    haven't found anything I would change on this scope.

    What others should know:

    Price was right for a 4-12x50.

    This is one of the best scopes you can purchase for your airgun. Large objective, clear optics, love the map 6 reticule and it's range finding capabilities.

    I wish everyone could check this out. The side by side comparison between the Hake vs UTG. I guess you just don't know what good is till you see it.

    Things I liked:

    Very good quality product, very clear glass edge to edge. Dead accurate on my TX200 and HW77.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing so far. Time will tell

    What others should know:

    I purchaced this scope to replace a leapers 3x9x40 that failed me. After fighting with customer service I decided to buy a quality product and my days of research led me to the Hawkes.

    Things I liked:

    Looks good.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the horizontal adjustment tighter so it does not move on fireing a rifle.

    What others should know:

    With a high energy spring piston rifle the windage (horizontal)adjustment will move 2 clicks to the right on each shot. After 10 to 12 shots you will start off by hitting the target on the fare left side and end up hitting it on the fare right side.

    I would like to see a possible red/grn redicals and personally i like the 12x zoom but would like to see Hawke offer up 16x in the future...also i says it wont fog which is pretty much true but when i take it fomr the A/C in side to the florida sun it fogs up for 10 minutes until temp adjusts but im sure any scope would do that
